A fourth-generation minister, Dieter has been on this path since childhood. He was born in Kansas City, Missouri, where his parents were studying and working at Unity Village. As a teen, he served in many leadership roles within the Youth of Unity, and it was in the Y.O.U. that he met his partner, Jenny. Throughout his journey, Dieter has been on fire about finding ways to take spiritual ideas beyond the traditional church setting.
As he puts it, “I think that for something to be truly meaningful, it has to apply to everybody, not just people in one specific situation or community.” With that idea in mind, Dieter has spoken and taught in countless venues and formats. Wherever he finds himself, people find him. Invariably folks come to Dieter with a hunger to grow, to find passion, to live deliberately. Dieter is here to help you find a life that you love, one that feeds you instead of making you feel tired. We’re all in this together. When you win, so does the world.
